The Tech Zone brengt ons een review van de Sony CPD-G500 beeldkanon. Deze 21 incher heeft een 0,24mm aperture grill en een maximale resolutie van 2048x1536 bij 75Hz. Klein nadeel kunnen de damper wires vormen die standaard bij Trinitron beeldbuizen geleverd worden .
The picture quality of the CPD-G500 is the best I've ever seen in any monitor. The thing that really stands out is small text. Even 6pt text is super sharp and totally readable. By contrast, all the shadow mask monitors we compared it to look blurry and out of focus. Colors were bright and saturation was perfect. The rendering of black was deeper than anything a shadow mask monitor can achieve. Thanks to its flat tube, there was no distortion of any kind near the corners of the monitor.
The CPD-G500 is not without fault. The main problem I have with it are the two damper wires used in the making of the Trinitron tube. These two wires are visible when a white background is shown. It's not that distracting but once you notice it, you tend to keep looking at it. The other problem I experienced with the CPD-G500 is once you get use to it, looking at any other monitors is like looking at a fish bowel! I had no idea my old Optiquest was that curved!
